This is probably not the smartest place you will ever stay, but it has great character, is warm, clean and great value in a wonderful part of the world. I would definitely recommend as it was perfect for our group, but don't expect the Ritz!

Plenty of space for our weekend of 10 people (3 lounges!), lovely kitchen to all sit around for dinner. A homely place to stay, not flashy, but definitely does the job. Managed to park 4 cars close by. Also had a lovely dinner at The Crabshell as recommended by Freddie. Nice wa…

Twelve of us spent a wonderfull couple of days in Devon and found the Retreat ideal for our purposes. It is fairly remote so it’s best to bring everything you’ll need with you. Freddie was easy to chat with beforehand and helped with advice re parking etc.

A lovely old house in a beautiful village, lovely location. The size of the house met our needs to house a large group of people. Appreciate that the size and age of the house requires a lot of upkeep and tlc.

Dear Helen, Thank you for being lovely guests to host with excellent communication. I would like to assure you that after your stay I spent two weeks at The Retreat and, after employing an engineer can assure all guests that the Sky TV is working as it should as is the wifi. I have also deep cleaned the house myself including all carpets, upholstery and spent a long time doing essential maintenance including, paintwork and other general tasks around a 17th Century house. Everything looked great in the house when I left for future guests and I don't expect these issues to reoccur in the future.
